Amy Winehouse: TB, or Not TB?

Looks like Amy Winehouse’s summer isn’t getting off to such a hot start.

British paper the Sun is reporting that the singer, who was hospitalized on Monday after fainting at her London home, may have tuberculosis. Apparently she’s been displaying classic symptoms of the illness, such as coughing up blood, an irregular heartbeat, a chest infection, and dramatic weight loss.

Wow; how in the world could she have contracted TB?

A friend of the singer claims: “She’d been suffering horrible coughing fits and hurling up blood for a while, but refused to be examined.”

Great; and in the meantime she’s been hopping the globe, spreading her icky germs.

For God’s sake, Amy, if by any miracle you end up performing again in the near future, wear a face mask.

Come to think of it, that might make for an improvement over some of your recent shows.
